Best Places to Stay in Koh Samet

This pristine island is extremely popular with Thai and foreign tourists alike, because apart from its immaculate beaches, its popular scuba dive centre and exotic nature, it is also easily reached from Bangkok. Thais flock here on holidays, prompting early booking to avoid disappointment. Especially our list of the best places to stay in Koh Samet sell out fast due to popular demand.

All areas on the island shouts idyllic beauty, but the kilometer long Hat Sai Kaew is the most popular and with good reason. It is atmospheric, features intimate restaurants and evening venues plus exiting water sports. On the west coast the 200 meter Ao Prao has no neighboring beaches, it is never crowded due to a lesser number of hotels and offers great ocean sunset views.

To escape the crowds and enjoy the romance of a small intimate cove Ao Phutsa, Ao Kiew or Vongduern Bay in the north are good areas to stay. Ao Phai is cut of from Hat Sai Kaew by a rocky outcrop and it features many hotels and resorts offering budget accommodation on 400 meters of relative calm. These are by no means the beginning and end of good locations, but certainly the most popular. We suggest using our yellow search box to expand you search to include many more resorts to choose from.
